SCIS International Scholars Program


The SCIS Community and Programs:

Established in 1996 as one of Shanghai’s first international schools, Shanghai Community International School (SCIS) has served as an essential cornerstone in the lives of many within the international community. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum World School, SCIS offers a premier educational experience aimed at rigorous critical thinking and global citizenship and, for our Upper School Students, the opportunity to earn the highly coveted IB Diploma and entrance to top universities worldwide.

At SCIS, our students are international scholars who are high academic achievers, actively involved in extra-curricular pursuits, demonstrate a desire to create global change, and contribute positively to their school community and beyond.


About the SCIS International Scholars Program:

The SCIS International Scholars Program Fund is provided by the SCIS Board of Directors, with contributions from SCIS alumni. This program is an effort to provide prospective students who exemplify the SCIS ethos with the opportunity to join our dynamic, international learning community and pursue the IB Diploma.

SCIS offers six diverse scholarships, open to prospective students applying to join SCIS for Grades 5 through 11 for enrollment during the 2024-25 school year. Through these opportunities, SCIS seeks internationally minded students who are highly motivated, talented, and dedicated to their communities, and who will flourish within the SCIS community and program.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of promise and potential, and in consideration of demonstrated financial need. Scholarship amounts range between 25-75% of the annual tuition fee, and are valid for up to 4 years, subject to annual review, and with the opportunity to renew through to graduation.
